The storage issue doesn't bother me. It sturdy enough to hang the nappy bag on the handle and can fit enough for me in the basket. Personally I chose lightweight an easy to move over bulky with lots of storage.
Ive never had an issue with the baby nest. It makes it feel and look more like a traditional pram. It sort of halves the size and provides great cushioning. My son is only 8 weeks old so I feel it gives him so much more comfort and safety. It could be a bit warm for a summer newborn though.
I was looking between the Cameleon and stokke. But ended up with the bugaboo bee LOL.
I loved the stokke because of height and look but after my research I found it hard to collapse and bulky.
I had to rethink what I wanted. And I decided I didn't want the two piece fold and wanted decent storage underneath. The stokke and Cameleon both have issues with this.
Hope that helps a bit.
The Bee has been great for a newborn.
But my DS currently is on strike of lying down in general now. But when he is in it, it's great.
It lies almost flat, faces backwards and forwards, has adapters for the maxi cosi capsule and is easy to move with one hand and easy to fold. You can get a cocoon as well if you want them more snug, but I haven't needed it.
Mind you it's not for off road travel. I don't plan on running or going on rough terrain though.
Why don't you think the Bee is good for a walk in the park?
I have the icandy peach and love it (from playing in the shop ) my little prem is still in hospital for a few more weeks. It was very easy to wheel around & turn 1 handed, easy to fold down and has a big storage basket. Plus the colours are really nice. Good luck with your decision.
Just got the limited Ed black cameleon and I hope I think it's as practical as I did testing it out! Lightweight, easy to use and a fantastic resale value. I know a friend with the stokke and it's one Wierd looking pram! Very. Very. Wierd!
